School --- but I went yesterday! [May. 8th, 2001|09:03 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick

I don't feel like going to school today, either.
Well, I want to go to music ... that class rules. But I hate my classics section.
Last classics section nobody was talking so our TA got pissed and left the room.
I haven't read this week and haven't done the handout, so why should I go?
So I think I'll go to history I guess (since I never read in that class either)
Then I'll eat with Blythe, then I'll go to music.
I tried to read classics and history last night.... read 3 pages of classics and fell asleep.
I have a history book report due on the 11th. Haven't started the book yet.
I just played with a spreadsheet ... I need a 3.404 average GPA over my next 43 credits (including the 16 this quarter) to get a 3.5 cumulative. I was really hoping mr. spreadsheet would say I only needed a 2.3 or something. That would've been nice.
Or ... I could just not care about hitting 3.5 overall. I didn't care until last week or so when I noticed I already had a 3.53. *sigh*

Update: If I don't go to classics I can't get Thursday's homework. Bleh. I guess I'll ride my bike to campus ... don't feel like taking the bus today.

Just remember, that piece of paper you get after you graduate will look the same whether you got a 3.5 or a 2.1.

Actually, I think it has a little pretty gold star or something if I get on the Dean's List (getting a 3.5)

You get some sort of gold sticker if you graduate (summa/magna) cum laude.

you can also make your mom happy

Your father graduated with well over a 3.5 and got to wear special cords around his neck. And his degree says that he graduated with honors. If you do not do well in your classes, I will put special cords (of a different kind) around your neck. :)

You should be damn proud of your son... and don't worry about his grades. I never finished college, I didn't even get as far as Brad. He'll make some stellar bucks when he's ready (if he isn't already ;)

I went yesterday...

I feel the same way about work.

My goal isn't a good GPA, it's how much hostility can i throw at my boss and keep my job.


Stay in school for as long as possible.

Mr Spreadsheet

Dogcowguy is: sick

Just an interesting fact (that you probably know anyway) about one particular spreadsheet product. Are you sitting comfortably? Then I shall begin...

When Microsoft first developed a spreadsheet (for the Macintosh cos the PC couldn't handle it for memory reasons) they couldn't think of a name. They eventually came up with the name, you guessed it, "Mr Spreadsheet". Then, about a week from the launch they had to abandon the name and call it "Excel" because they were threatened with a lawsuit from a company that made paper spreadsheets called "Mr Spreadsheet".

OK, that's enough talk. I feel sick. I'ma go now.
